Landrieu backs bill cutting baggage fees

Related Story

BATON ROUGE- Senator Mary Landrieu, D-LA, says people have been nickeled and dimed too much, which is why she's backing a bill to restrict some airline baggage fees.

It would require airlines to allow one free, checked bag and one free, carry on bag.

Senator Landrieu says bag fees force many people to cram too many items in a carry on bag to avoid fees. 

TSA estimates extra screening time costs the federal government $260 million dollars.  Travelers say the screening problems can also cause longer airport lines and delays.
